How Do I Know If I Need A Root Canal?

How Do I Know If I Need A Root Canal?

Most people are understandably concerned when they start to have sensitivity, biting discomfort, or other unusual symptoms. Quickly your mind can jump to the worst case scenario and all of a sudden you’re thinking “I might need a root canal? Oh no!”.

Let’s go over what your dentist looks for and what you can look for to know whether you need a root canal.

SENSITIVITY

Sensitivity to hot or cold can be the first sign that something is going wrong with your tooth… or it can be nothing at all.

When you’re ok…

If something hot or cold hits your tooth and you have a quick, painful sensation that goes away in a couple of seconds, this is fairly normal.

When you need a root canal…

If that same hot or cold hits your tooth and it continues to hurt for 15-20 seconds or even minutes, the nerve is likely in the process of dying and you’ll need a root canal.

PAIN

Tooth pain comes in a variety of ways. There can be aching, shooting, throbbing, stabbing, electrical, burning, tingling, constant, dull, or severe pains. You can have a combination of these.

When you’re ok…

A dull ache or occasional minor sharp pains aren’t terribly unusual. These can be the sign that you have a cavity, bit on something wrong, or are having sinus problems. As long as it doesn’t become severe, these don’t usually signal the need for a root canal.

When you need a root canal…

Constant severe pain that comes on all by itself or after a stimulus of some sort is not normal. This almost always indicates that you need a root canal. Pain that is strong enough to wake you up at night is a great indicator of this as well. Most of the time, this type of pain comes presents as a throbbing severe pain. Most people say it feels like the tooth throbs along with your heartbeat.

SWELLING

Swelling is usually the sign of infection. Figuring out whether it is related to your tooth or not is the big trick in knowing whether you need a root canal.

When you’re ok…

A number of things other than an abscessed tooth can show up as swelling of the gums, lips, or cheek. The most common are related to gum disease of some sort. Gum disease is a chronic, long term infection of the gums around your teeth. Occasionally this infection can get out of control and cause some significant swelling. Other less likely things that can cause swelling include mucoceles, fibromas, other growths, or trauma.

When you need a root canal…

Swelling that is associated with an infection of your tooth (an abscessed tooth) means you most definitely need a root canal. The nerve inside the tooth has died and all this tissue inside has now become infected. The tooth acts as a constant source of infection that affects the bone and other tissues around your tooth. A root canal removes all this infected tissue and allows your body to heal.

If your tooth is abscessed you’ll usually have pain when you touch the tooth or bite with it. The swelling typically occurs next to or around the tooth but can also move further away so that it looks like it is coming from somewhere else.

BITING PAIN

Biting pain is another one of those tricky ones. Biting pain can be related to an infection, trauma, a failing filling, or a cracked tooth.

When you’re ok…

A failing filling or cracked tooth don’t always mean you need a root canal. You may just need a new filling or crown instead. Cracked teeth are more likely to need a root canal in the future though.

Some people also have trauma to teeth as a result of an accident or from grinding and clenching their teeth. This can lead to pain, especially when biting. If you’ve had recent trauma give the tooth some time to settle down before jumping to the conclusion you need a root canal. If you’re a grinder consider investing in a night guard to reduce the force on your teeth.

When you need a root canal…

An infected tooth means you definitely need a root canal. No way out of this one.

A cracked tooth that has developed significant pain, sensitivity, or in which the crack extends into the nerve means that it would need a root canal.

LARGE CAVITIES

Cavities are no fun. Large cavities are even less fun, especially when you end up needing a root canal. X-rays of your tooth can show the rough extent of a cavity but don’t tell the whole story. Your dentist will only know it’s full extent once they clean it all out of the tooth.

When you’re ok…

If the cavity doesn’t extend to the nerve of the tooth once your dentist removes it, then you’re in the clear, at least for the time being. If it is really close to the nerve you may develop symptoms in the future that mean you need a root canal. Most dentists try to avoid going into the nerve space when at all possible in order to give your tooth a chance.

When you need a root canal…

If the cavity is removed and the nerve of the tooth is exposed then it will need a root canal. In very rare cases where the opening to the pulp chamber is only a pinpoint your dentist may do what is known as a pulp cap and try to let the tooth heal itself. Long term, you’ll probably still end up needing a root canal at some point.

This can be a good guide of whether you need a root canal, but it is important to know that there are many times when you could need a root canal without even knowing it. I’ve seen plenty of infected teeth or teeth with extremely large cavities in which the person had no idea there was a problem at all. The best prevention for root canals is good oral hygiene, reducing sugar and acid in your diet, and seeing your dentist consistently so they can catch things early.

•If your cavity in the tooth is caused by decay, your dentist will remove the decayed area and replace it with a filling. •If the pulp inside your tooth is infected, you may need root canal treatment. This procedure involves removing the infected pulp and then inserting a special type of filling to seal the tooth and prevent re-infection.

Oral submucous fibrosis is a premalignant condition which affects the whole mouth. It is caused by consumption of supari and tobacco. The chances of getting oral cancer are almost 19 times if you have submucous fibrosis. The chances are increased in those who continue to consume tobacco, supari or alcohol. Even after quitting the habits, the increased risk of cancer persists for 10-15 years. Furthermore, submucous fibrosis is not known to revert back to normal. If one continues the habits, the chances of getting further fibrosis which leads to trismus and difficulty in mouth opening increases. If trismus occurs, Various treatments like jaw stretching exercises, lycopene, antioxidants, steroid and hyaluronidase injections to surgery with flaps and coronoidectomy have been tried with different levels of success. As you don't have decreased mouth opening at present, no intervention is advisable. Close Clinical observation 6 monthly by a head and neck surgeon or a surgical oncologist is advisable, so that they can detect cancer at an early curative stage. But definitely you have to quit smoking and alcohol as if not only increases the severity of the submucous fibrosis, but also increases the chances of cancer. If you want to discuss further, donot hesitate to contact me directly.

Hi, lybrate-user, it takes about six years, between the ages of six and 12, for children to lose their primary (deciduous) teeth and gain their permanent teeth. Nothing to worry about.

All About Tongue Problems

All About Tongue Problems

Tongue is an important organ of your body. Without the tongue you would not have been able to enjoy one of the most pleasurable experiences of life: tasting food! Imagine how life would be without the sudden euphoria you experience when you taste something delicious. Not only do your taste buds help you to taste food, but it also rejects harmful substances like toxins and sends your brain a signal to avoid consuming it. The tongue also helps in digestion of food. It makes the food pass easily from your mouth and throat to your stomach. Apart from tasting and sending signals to your brain, the tongue helps you to talk. It facilitates speech. It alters the air in your mouth which is produced by the vocal cords. That is how you make a wide range of sounds.

Tongue Problems:

  1. Burning sensation on the tongue: This normally occurs in women who have recently attained menopause. Mood swings are also a characteristic feature of menopause. Burning sensation is rare but a symptom of post menopause. Burning sensations can also occur due to cigarette smoking.

  2. Change in the tongue color: Many times having a pink tongue means deficiency in iron, folic acid and vitamin B-12. This can also be because of an allergy to gluten. A white tongue can occur due to smoking or drinking alcohol.

  3. Tongue pain: It can occur due to biting, injury or infection. Canker pains are also common. It can be caused by aging, diabetes, tumors and infection.

  4. Tongue swelling: It is caused by down-syndrome, tongue cancer, leukemia, strep throat and anemia.

  5. Oral thrush: It is a yeast infection. It makes the surface of the tongue and the mouth look like cottage cheese. People suffering from asthma or diabetes can also get oral thrush.

Remedies for tongue problem:

  1. Don't consume spicy and hot food.

  2. If you have a canker sore, try to drink only cold beverages and eat soft foods.

  3. Rinse your mouth regularly with a mixture of warm water and salt or you can also make a mixture of warm water and baking soda.

  4. Apply ice to soothe your tongue.

If the tongue pain persists then it is better to book an appointment with an ENT specialist or with an otolaryngologist.

braces are the best solution. otherwise you can if slanting is not much, go for composite ot ceramic veneers with or without rct. if slanting is much, than removal n replacement of the same with bridging or implants can be done. both of this will damage your natural teeth. do better to go for braces.
